Etruria is a historical font published by Dima Pole.

The typeface Etruria is based on Etruscan scripts and awesome exactly simulates the real writing of the Etruscans. Etruria’s idea is to give an opportunity for anyone to touch the past of mankind!
The characters of the Etruscan alphabet involve the creation of a font with only uppercase letters. However, Etruria not limited by this. Etruria has not only an extra set of alternates in place of lowercase glyphs, but it also has an additional set of alternative characters.

In General, the main characteristic of Etruscan writing is originality and non-repeating of characters. Differs from lowercase to uppercase is only the first step on the road to make randomness effect. Next to the aid of the OT features. To recreate the randomness effect, in Etruria there are several OT features (Contextual Alternates, Stylistic Alternates and Stylistic Sets), which built a script to simulate randomness. Additionally, another script creates the effect of random positioning. Together they create incredibly realistic Etruscan inscription.

Thus, any of these features can be disabled at will. I also used a small line spacing, because it is characteristic of the Etruscan writing.

A distinctive feature of the Etruscan letters is that it mirrors the shape of the letters. I didn’t use this feature for all the letters, because this would make the font difficult to perceive, but to make the font characteristic of the Etruscan style, I made a few letters in mirror image. However, if for someone it may seem unusual, mirrored letters can be disabled instead of them will appear more familiar to them.

Another feature of Etruscan writing is using a dotacentered instead of a spac. Etruria has this feature, there is a OT feature Stylistic Set 03. Naturally, it also can be disabled optionally.

All these features can be used together, separately, or turn it off.

The main goal achieved! The text typed in Etruria, creates full impression of these Etruscan inscriptions.
